Body Coach Joe Wicks had fans in a flutter as he conducted his daily PE class dressed as Spider-Man.
The fitness guru has been holding weekday fitness sessions for children who are off school as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, and countless parents and grandparents have also been joining in.
Friday’s workout was a special fancy dress session to round off the week and Wicks opted to don a superhero costume.
Fans were impressed with the star’s “Spidey kicks” and “Spidey lunges”, with many posting messages on social media calling him “brilliant”.
“Thank you to Joe Wicks, you are bringing fun every day to our life,” said one grateful fan, while others called him “an inspiration”.

Plenty of Wicks’ followers also wore fancy dress for the special workout.
One person shared a clip of someone in a giant unicorn suit alongside a little Batman.
Another pair took part as Peter Pan and his shadow.

Wicks started the 30-minute sessions on his YouTube channel last week after declaring that he wanted to be “the nation’s PE teacher”, and kids and adults across the country have been joining in.
Some fans from abroad have even been tuning in for the workouts.
Wicks told The Guardian he was “over the moon” about how the sessions have taken off.
